Blidworth Welfare took to the stage with the xylophone solo ‘Rondo all Turca’ performed by 18 year old Aaron Curcher and the breathtaking encore of ‘Flight of the Bumble Bee’.

Joint performance came with ‘Bandology’ and ‘Mars’, to conclude a fine afternoon of music making performed to a packed hall .
